Will Rick Perry be next Republican Bozo president?

I keep telling you to go take a course or two in economics so you can stop making an ass of yourself. To attribute the decent economy during the Bush years to govt spending on security is totally bogus. And what exactly would you libs have done after 911 Sent a cake to Bin Laden?

Exactly how was Iraq going to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons? The more logical scenario would be for Iraq to acquire their own nukes. As for destroying Iraq, polls of the Iraqis show the mahjority think the liberation of Iraq was a good thing. Why is it that the libs, who are supposed to be so concerned about everyones rights, usually wind up siding with dictators?

We can start working on that right after we get done paying off the $4tril that Obama has added in just 3 years. And the $10tril his last budget forecast adding over the next 10 years.

Why is it only war debt that concerns you? The cost of both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan come to about $1.3 tril. That is for two wars lasting a decade. Obama managed to add $4tril in new debt, so war is clearly not the major cause of deficits and the national debt.

The debacle the Dems suffered a year ago was NOT by tiny margins.
It was pretty easy to see by the tenor of the protests when

Get over it. Union membership has been steadily declining since the 70s. Voters in many states have had enough of paying generous salaries, full health care benefits, then seeing civil service folks retire at 50 to take on a second civil service position while collecting a generous pension for the first. Of of holding down TWO civil service jobs at the same time. Or of toll collectors making $100K+, as is going on here in NJ. So politicians are making some changes, like asking those civil service workers to pay part of their medical insurance costs, just like most of the taxpayers who are paying their salaries do.

I'll just wait for the election that's less than a year away.

So, now it was a trick capturing Bin Laden?

Boy, you sure don't understand economics. Government spending drives DOWN the GDP and destroys wealth.
We saw that when Roosevelt implemented all manner of government jobs programs back in the 30's and we see it now with stimulus and government subsidy money.

So the construction workers who find themselves employed again -- by companies that bid successfully on govt. projects -- building and repairing roads and bridges, etc. don't have "real jobs" -- they would be better off doing something else?
But that is not to say that the projects might cost less if they were built by government employees instead of being contracted out.

These "real" workers are getting paid by tax money. This tax money was extracted from citizens (or borrowed) and thereby removed from the GDP. SOME of it, less a handling charge, graft, waste, redundancy, and lack of necessity, was, admittedly, put back in to the economy.

And being paid artificially high rates because of the "prevailing wage" laws that essentially mean only union contractors can bid.

"Transfers wealth." Hurricanes, wars and even time can "destroy" wealth.* Government jobs for the unemployed "transfers" wealth. It's an important distinction. The salary paid to that formerly unemployed worker then moves on into the hands of grocers, landlords, local governments, etc.

How well has your idea of wealth transfer worked in Greece? Or Italy, which is close behind? How much better of are the people, the country? What they've done is create a country of people that are like spoiled children. Govt jobs have been paid salaries, vacations, days off, healthcare benefits, ets that were all far too generous. For the rest of the population, socialism provided everything from unemployment, to healthcare and welfare, whether anyone wanted to work or not.
Now the country is bankrupt from all the wealth that has been transferred. What Heybub is referring to is that if that wealth had been left in the private sector, REAL wealth would have been created.
As for your comment about a hard drive having wealth, perhaps it's time for that course in economics.

Look up "The Broken Window fallacy". It'll open your eyes (if you have a brain).

You have to admit that poor Rick seems to have a lot of "deer in the headlights" moments. Many more than the Speechifier in Chief who *got* the job primarily because of his oratorial abilities. It certainly wasn't because of his years of executive experience.
Now if Rick could somehow wife swap his way to Katy Perry, singer of the infamous "I Kissed a Girl . . " he might jump back up in the ratings.

What we need is a superhot first lady to "absorb" all the interest of pseudo-reporters/gossip columnists so that her husband can govern the country unbothered by the paparazzi press. Maybe he could adopt her as the superhot first daughter . . . Hey, if Romney, Perry and Cain are all they've got, the Republicans are in trouble.

Nah-- At this time in 2003 the Ds were trying to decide between Dean, Clark and Gebhardt. It wasn't until Feb. that Kerry arose to 'save' them. So don't count out grandpa M. . . Ron Paul. At least it should be entertaining for the next year.
